Step 1: The Advantage of the Handy Swing
The big advantage of the handy swing is that you can take him everywhere where you go in the nature. It’s so that you can put the swing easy in a backpack.
Step 2: Make Everything Ready
First of all you need to get the ropes out of the swing. For this you have to loosening the hook & loop tape. After this lay the ropes stretched out in front of the swing.
Step 3: Throwing the Rope With a Snap Hook
Before you can throw te rope over a branch you have to fix a snap hook to each rope. This is because the rope would come easier down after you throw them over a branch.
Now take the rope about 1 metre from the snap hooks and throw it over the branch of your chosen tree. Do this with both snap hooks.
Step 4: Attaching the Artillery Loop
With a simple twist you lay the artillery loop around the iron pleated hooks.
Step 5: Bringing the Swing at a Good Height
First you pull the rope through the hole of 1 centimetre, now you pull on the rope till the swing is hanging on the right height. Also make sure that the swing is hanging nice horizontally. At the bottom of the swing where the rope comes through the hole of 1 centimetre you fix the rope with a carpenter stich.
Step 6: Bandaging and Knotsing of the Rope
Now turn the surplus of the rope around the wooden cubes. When you have about 30 centimetre rope over you put the rope through one of the two holes and fix it with a carpenter stich. Do this with both ropes.
Step 7: Confirming the Seat Belt Shoulder Protectors
Before whe can swing we have to do one more thing. Take the seat belt shoulder protectors and attached them around the ropes so the ropes come together under the seat belt shoulder protectors. You attached them on the height where you normally take the ropes to swing.
Step 8: Now It’s Time to Swing Like Never Before !!
Step 9: Breaking Down the Swing
After you have done with enjoying the swing it's time to show you how to break down the swing.
The first step is to fix the artillery loop back from around the iron pleated hook. Now you can pull the rope back from over the branch.
After this you take the rope and you roll it up into pieces of 50 centimetres. Now you can put it back under the swing and lay it down with the hook & loop tape.
Now you can put it in a backpack and hiking further in the nature!
